    At 20 minutes into the latest sam harris podcast, he talks to a guy who grows meat in a lab. It is meat without a cow. The interview comes like an infomercial, which is okay for me to get the information out to the public to get a discussion.

    There does seem to be some benefits - no suffering to cows, less need to feed antibiotics to cows, lower chance of shit mixing in the meat, maybe less energy requirements, maybe lead to decrease need to cut 0t down land to be set up for grazing land, less methane produced since now cows ect

    If it costs the same as ground beef, i would try it.

    There was an episide if Better off ted where they grew meat in the lab. A taster on the show said it tasted familiar, like despair.

    If you get all the benefits (and hopefully less of the bad things) and it taste good at the same price then yes.

    Probably wouldn't taste good. How are they going to replace a big fat marbled steak? I have to have that in my life. Pass the shitty meat buck to the next generation. I can only be so civilized.

    feed a family of dogs nothing but that meat for 20 years worth of generations and see if any abnormalities appear. If none, or if something cool like super strength or somesuch thing happens only then you can feed it to humans.

    Meat is immoral. I'd like you to meet....MeetPlus. Chemically engineered to Meet* your daily needs.

    *Do not eat MeetPlus if you expect to engineer a baby in the next 90 days. MeetPlus may disinhibit the appendix in Consumer Groups Alpha and Delta. Ask your Care Coordinator if MeetPlus is safe for your genotype.

    It would likely contain less chemicals than traditionally grown meat .
